Vienna International Airport is the gateway to one of the most elegant short break destinations in Europe: a city renowned for its history, architecture, culture, artistic heritage and fine cuisine. The Austrian capital is just 18km from the airport. This is the largest and busiest airport in Austria. The smart interior has been greatly enhanced by opening of the Austrian Star Alliance terminal in 2012. There are over 70 shops, and an excellent choice of bars and restaurants. There is free wi-fi access and a classy hotel opposite arrivals. Efficient public transport connects the airport with the city centre. Planned public transport improvements will reduce travel time to the city centre to just 16 minutes and connect Vienna Airport directly with Bratislava. The cheapest flights in recent years have usually been with low-cost airline EasyJet, with daily direct flights from London Gatwick. Finding affordable direct flights from airports outside London is more problematic.
